  • Wisconsin emancipation.

    I think I I have a good case to get out against my parents wishes but I can not even get an attorny to return a phone call or find one with experience in emancipation. How can I possibly get everything in order to get out if there is nobody that can help?

    Thanks for contacting NRS and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you with figuring out your next steps in this difficult situation. Asking for help was really responsible and smart of you.

    We are not legal experts by any means, but we do have limited information about the process of being emancipated. To be emancipated and gain the rights and responsibilities of being a legal adult (renting an apartment, enrolling yourself in school, working full time, etc) you need to show a judge that you are already living separately from your guardian, you are able to financially support yourself, and that emancipation is in your best interest.

    Emancipation can vary by state, but the usually the first step in the process is to file a petition. You can most likely do this by going to the court in your county and paying a filing fee. If you would like to consult with a legal advocate first, we are happy to connect you with legal aid resources in your area if you call our hotline at 1-800-786-2929 or use our live chat services at

    We truly want to be a support for you as you decide on your next steps. We are available 24/7 to listen and help as much as possible. Please do not hesitate to reach out again by phone or chat if you would like to talk more in-depth about your situation and explore your options.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
